Reception’s Spring Watch

Spring has finally sprung here in Reception.  To celebrate the start of Spring, we have been enjoying the great outdoors, planting lots of beautiful flowers, making bird feeders and collecting lots of eggs from our chickens.  We are now very lucky to have an outdoor camera to capture those special moments that we might normally miss.  We would like you to join us in spotting any wildlife wonders, such as birds, butterflies and bees in our lovely Spring garden.   What will you discover….?

Year 4 Assembly -National Storytelling Week

Today year 4 delivered a fantastic assembly, all about stories. They shared their favourite stories, re told “The Wizard and the Wizard”, by Julia Donaldson and even shared some of their stories, which they had written. They finished their assembly with a lovely song, which really captured how people feel when they read a book. What are your favourite stories?

Presenting your new School Council!

School Council is now up and running again for this school year! Every class has chosen their representative and the School Council met for the first time this afternoon. Each brand-new member is raring to go, keen to help improve school life for all our children, and enthusiastic about being a big part of the decision-making process at The Ferns.

Last year was very successful for our School Council, and this year promises to be even more so, with our new extension now taking shape.

Here they are, your new, keen and eager School Councillors!
